Change mistake type:
A brief explanation of all the mistake types:
Continuity - something changing from one shot to the next, such as costumes or things in the background.
Factual error - a historical innacuracy or "real world" mistake.
Visible crew or equipment - cameras, microphones, crew members, etc..
Plot hole - a logical flaw in the film, such as a character doing something for no other reason than to further the plot.
Revealing mistake - anything which reminds you that it's a movie, such as stunt wires being visible, or glass smashing before anyone goes through it.
Audio problem - anything related to sound, such as echoes where there shouldn't be, or speech not matching lip movements.
Character mistake - something a character wrongly states as fact, or gets wrong in some other way. Not something deliberately intended to be an inaccurate statement - this is for things which are almost certainly mistakes by the scriptwriters, but might otherwise be explained away as a mistake a real person might make.
Deliberate "mistake" - these are done deliberately for whatever reason (the barriers disappearing in "Matrix Reloaded", for example - they're removed to give us a better view, rather than due to an oversight). They're still things which change during a film, rather than trivia, but deserve their own category rather than being classed with "accidental" mistakes.
Other - anything else...

Looking at the left-handed shot in freeze-frame, you can see the frame has been flipped, left-to-right (check the armor). This was probably for continuity reasons. Similarly, Maximus jumps on the horse and his shoulder protector is clearly on his injured left shoulder. However, a few frames later, the protector is on his right shoulder, then it moves yet again back the correct spot, the left shoulder.|
